LWC Theatre to present: The Trojan Women

By Jeremy Cloyd

The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program will present the classical Greek play The Trojan Women on May 1, 2, 3, & 5.

The Emily Wilson translation of the Euripides classic is directed by LWC Director of Theatre Robert Brock, and will be performed at 7pmCT nightly on May 1, 2, & 3 and at 2pmCT on Sunday, May 5, 2019, in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY. The play is presented in blackbox style meaning there is limited seating. For ticket information or reservations contact Robert Brock at or (270) 384-8044.

In a post-apocalyptic cityscape, a small group of survivors of war attempt to make sense of senseless violence, find community, and hold onto their agency. Called by some the Western canon's first anti-war play, Trojan Women (translated by Emily Wilson) is about the power of testimony in the face of unimaginable suffering.

"Wilson's translation brings a focus on telling these kinds of stories from women's perspectives." says director Robert Brock. "It's important to not only continue to produce these classic Greek plays, but to also produce the best and most inspiring translations."

Junior Sharon Archey, who plays Cassandra in the production, tells us she is particularly excited about the way the play has been directed and designed. "We went so far as to make masks in the same style that the Greeks would have when they did the play," says Archey. "It's going to be so cool to see this come to life in such a traditionally Greek way."
